- Wedding: October 2012
So you remember the Swan shoe by Manolo Blahnik? I wanted these shoes like no other. I can’t walk in 5″ heels and I only budgeted $50 for shoes. *sigh*
It took months to find a subsititute. Everything was either too high, too pointy, or too pricey. If there is an online discount shoe shop, I guarentee you I’ve seen it. I was ready to give up. Then I found these on mega clearance at 6pm.com. They had a slight peeptoe, 3″ heel and were ivory satin. I could settle for the lack of bling.
Then today I was rummaging in all the wedding boxes and came across some headbands I’d found at f21. I was thinking about making a ribbon headband or comb. Then I remembered my abandoned shoe quest and voila!
Shoes – $17.76 Rose embellishments $20 for 4
Feeling like I just satisfied my need for $1300 dream shoes in 5 minutes for $37.76? Priceless! They would never pass as knockoffs or anything but they meet every need I had and I was $10 under budget! Win!
